House of Cards November Technique Challenge


Hi everyone! It's November and that means a new challenge at House of Cards!! Mynn has shared a very cool video on a stamped and cut window technique

I am known for always stretching- who am I kidding!!-  I mean breaking the rules a bit. So I had to come up with a bit of a twist on the challenge. So I did a double cut and stamped window. I wonder how many cut and stamped windows could you create? Could it be like looking in two mirrors? it goes on for infinity?!!?


If you read yesterday's blog posting you know that my new fav stamp company is Reverse Confetti. I used the Pumpkin Patch set again for my challenge card.

I made my card with two background, the stripes:



I just wasn't sure so I tried it with a woodgrain background:



I was torn, but the stripes just keep whispering a wee bit louder. What do you think- stripes or woodgrain?

Please join us at House of Cards this month for this way fun and cool technique!

Fabulous cards Sue and I really like your twist to the technique, that is what makes this design team so fun! As far as stripes or woodgrain, can not possibly pick a favorite both are stunning! Donna T.

I love your interpretation of the challenge; I love both cards. However, I prefer the woodgrain card as it feels more "autumnal".

Such a striking CAS design! I love the pumpkin stamped off the edge! I really think I like both the stripes and woodgrain pretty much equally. Personal preference may make me lean towards woodgrain just a tad :)

Like your twist on this card for this technique, and the pumkin and the sentiment is so nice.

This is very cool. Love how you have the sentiment in a window and your image goes across both.
